Bouwmeester signs 5-year extension, Paajarvi Signs
Also, Blues forward Magnus Paajarvi, whom they acquired from Edmonton in the trade for David Perron, signed a 2-year deal this week as well. GM Doug Armstrong said in an interview this week, “Magnus is a well-rounded player who has good size and great skating ability,” Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong said after acquiring Paajarvi from Edmonton. “He is just coming into his own and this will open up more ice time for Jaden (Schwartz) and Vladimir (Tarasenko).”
With Schwartz being the tough player in the playoffs last year and Tarasenko struggling to score, this should bode well for the Blues who hope to score more goals and be in contention in high scoring games.
Paajarvi will wear #56 for the Bluenote
Until next time,
